White Voile Regency

I have 7 yards of cotton voile which could make a nice gown, a la these examples.

I might ditch the train, though, as that would make dancing and even walking a real pain. Otherwise I would have to pin or loop it up.

I think I’m going to start with the pattern I used on my blue dress, with the bib-front, because I really like the way it fits. Then I’ll go from there.

This morning, I began working on a bodiced petticoat, because my voile is way too transparent to wear without something under it.

Here I’m fiddling with the front, as I wasn’t sure if I wanted the petticoat to be really fitted or have a drawstring at the top edge. I’m still wavering on it.
